Many people use heat pads and other use heating cables, I find heating cables useful on the fact that you can use it to heat more that one set up

as for the rest of the questions I will let someone else answer them :oops:

Thanks larynx, this looks perfect.
When using a heat pad condensation will probably occur more since it covers most of the nest. In the other hand, the heating cable covers less so it would probably have less condensation. I am no expert thou, both get condensation. Depending on the set up and how wet it is. Set ups usually need a dry zone and a humid zone, I use the cable on the dry one and that will cause less condensation.

But I heard Condensation is always a problem :lol:

What type of nest do you have?

Thank you. I will check eBay and Amazon. I may not use the heating cable all the time, but wanted to get one in case I need it.
